For years, I could not start a day without reading a thought from Melody Beattie. I have been recently rediscovering her work. Here’s a sample…
We go back . . . and back . . . and back . . . through the layers of fear, shame, rage, hurt, and negative incantations until we discover the exuberant, unencumbered, delightful, and lovable child that was, and still is, in us.
— BEYOND CODEPENDENCY
You are lovable. Yes, you.
Just because people haven’t been there for you, just because certain people haven’t been able to show love for you in ways that worked, just because relationships have failed or gone sour does not mean that you’re unlovable.
You’ve had lessons to learn. Sometimes, those lessons have hurt.
Let go of the pain. Open your heart to love.
You are lovable.
You are loved.
Today I will tell myself I’m lovable. I will do this until I believe it.
